To help make efficient use of our public health services, please follow our referral guidelines.
All referrals received by outpatient clinics will be reviewed to determine the clinical urgency of the patient’s condition.
Wait times for an outpatient appointment will be varied depending on availability of services.
See our Outpatient Referral Process for valid referral criteria.
Referrals must be submitted electronically (if available) or in writing and should contain the required minimum information to ensure timely and appropriate decision making.
- A named referral is preferred.
- Incomplete referrals may be returned to referrers for completion.
